A big thank you: from myself and my friend Liz to everyone who sponsored us for the Great North Run. We had a great (if wet and blustery) day and managed to finish in two hours and 12 minutes. We managed to raise over £2,500 for the Stroke Association and are now enjoying running much shorter distances!

News and events: please let me know if you would like to publicise your news or an event in Pannal and Burn Bridge. I need to know eight days in advance of publication so that I can include the details.
